THE INSITE DROPS BY THE KOREAN STUDENT CONFENRENCE AT EMORY UNIVERSITY IN ATLANTA!

DIANE AND LYNN (BOTH MISS KOREA TEXAS) ARE VISITING FROM HOUSTON!





The Insite had a chance to visit Emory University in Atlanta Friday to cover some Houstonians I ran into at the airport. Diane Yoo (light colored dress) was there to support Miss Korea-Texas Lynn Jo (darker dress). She was a featured speaker for KASCON. That’s the Korean American Student Conference. Jo’s topic was a raw and open discussion about the beauty and pageant industries. She also told how eating disorders almost killed her friend and how bulimia has affected her life. Now, the beauty queen goes around speaking to young people about the danger of eating disorders. Jo said it took her throwing up blood one day to turn her life around. Now she tells the Insite instead of cutting corners she works out four hours a day during her pageant competitions. However, she says those hours are spread evenly throughout the day. The 2007 Miss Korea Texas says she wants young people to know beauty is part of a process that one must work on and there are no quick fixes to getting your body in shape. Her speech was one of the most popular sessions at the conference. The event attracted students from all around the world. The Insite also took the time to snap some pictures at the event. Here are some of the people who stopped and posed: Diane Yoo, Carl Choi, Terrence Henderson, Bernard Moon, Paul Kim, Christine Hong, Lee Chul-Woo, and Elliot Lee just to name a few!
